BRSD introduces writer’s and reader’s workshops
On Monday, Oct. 13 Bordentown Regional School District staff began work bright and early for their day of professional development. The Kindergarten through fifth grade teachers met at Peter Muschal Elementary School to spend time reviewing Writer’s Workshop, implemented by the district this year. Time was spent discussing the new units in writing and celebrating the success of the student’s writing so far this year.
The teachers spent the remainder of the day learning about Reader’s Workshop. This is going to be a new initiative for the 2015-2016 school year. Teachers are preparing and learning the different components which will focus on independent reading. The teachers all met as grade level teams and began to create their SGO’s (Student Growth Objective). These are goals that teachers create for the class after looking at student data.
